The murder of 129 people in the streets of Paris on Friday, November 13, has only trained hearts and minds more on this ground zero in the interlaced struggles for peace on Earth with justice.
We're a Transition Towns group based in the Metro DC area that wishes to support all efforts to build sustainable communities, but has a special focus on food issues. We also run D.C.'s local currency, the Potomac.

Rapid changes are taking place. Whether or not we accept peak oil, global warming, and climate change, increasing gas and food prices are an undeniable reality. Economic decline, financial meltdown, and the housing crisis have come together in a perfect storm that challenges us to make better choices. Responses range from survivalist homesteaders, earthship bioneers, and ecovillages to Transition towns and eco-cities. Ecolocity welcomes all of these approaches and hopes to weave them into a vision for the DC Metro area.

If you are interested in resuming or continuing Transition efforts, i'm writing to introduce Pamela Boyce Simms who can offer support. I met with her on Friday and she is enthusiastic to see Transition going again in the DMV. If you have taken the Transition Training she may be contacting you directly. Please pass on this information to anyone who may be interested.
